president is not wearing a suit today or why is mitt romney wearing jeans instead of a suit? who is wearing -- i had a candidate for noted for wearing gucci loafers and that made the media but that is the only example i can think of with men. >> jimmy carter had his car again. if you were old enough -- there was some criticism but nothing like what women go through. we had some examples in the book. kathleen sibelius' told a story about being in the first debate when she was running for governor the first time and she had on pink toed shoes and the writer who is a very good political writer talked about the color of her toenail polish and this was the lead thing that she had shut up and was describing what she was wearing and if you remember when michele bachman was running there were photographs of her french nails and whether or not these were appropriate for someone running for president, the way they were shaved and the french nails were appropriate and nancy pelosi we mentioned -- it was somewhere in the book, when she first became speaker there was this series of pearls, they took nic

they think it's a good thing and they vote for romney thinking they are doing the right thing for the economy. how do they fit in the narrative of the stolen american dream? if they actually think their vote is reclaiming its where do they get? >> one of the things you need to know and i describe in the book is that 33 out of the members that were elective in the house in 2010 and the average net worth of the tea party members of the house of representatives is $1.8 million they really don't figure very largely because i really honestly believe this is historical. the tea party people are latecomers and happen to be articulating some of that same things that were articulated by barry goldwater and the 48 years ago but the roots of the problem don't lie with the tea party. as a matter of fact i had a tea party heckler at a speech the other night and he and i spent the first two-thirds of dialogue agreeing on a situation in america. he started describing how bad the situation was in flint michigan and i said you're making my case. i'm right with you. keep going to reset on your worst nightmare,

woman -- hilary rosen said of anne romney that she's never worked a day in her life because she is a stay at home mom. as the home mom and any mom knows well work much harder to stay at those babies than it is to go to work. i will tell you that. it's very tough to be a stay at home mom. how about democratic chairmen, the chairman of the democrats' committee in south carolina. he's on the left, just a profound region little come and dick compared governor niki haley to ease the deal because the sixth eva braun. did you hear any one country that has paid all? know. ricky by the way suffered disproportionately as all conservative women do by the ridiculous character assaults, attack, attack when she was running for governor she was constantly accused of having an adulterous affair. there was not a single scintilla of evidence to back that up and in fact mckee said if you bring up one piece of evidence and out of this race yet nobody can bring up anything and yet the liberal media insist on putting that and every single article for about the entire campaign to her character to

can you respond if in the back row of the audience mitt romney stood up and said mr. kaplan, you are being defeatist. you are walking away from america's historical role, america is the essential power and you are talking about necessary decline. >> i am not being defeatist. i am being sly. i want american influence to extend long into the decades but it cannot do that bearing the same exact level of burden we have been bearing now. in the middle east we cannot confront russia, cannot confront china and be the hegemon in the greater middle east in leslie. we have to move closer to vladimir putin to balance against china but at the same time not let countries like vietnam and the philippines drag us into a war with china over the south china sea. it is about clever balancing and in any case the u.s. has so much shale oil deposits in texas, louisiana and other places i could name which is about geography that we are going to be because of energy reserves going to be a significant power for decades to come in any case so now is the time to try to get allies and like-minded others to

in the vice presidential debates and subsequently again romney versus obama? >> i don't think science has ever played a large role in election outcome and for me that's unfortunate. do i think al gore would have been a better president? no. you know someone who routinely exaggerate science offends me as a scientist. because that is not what scientists were supposed to do. his movie inconvenient truth regularly took information and would stretch it to a point of well okay, it's still scientifically somewhat accurate but you are really stretching it here and he did that over and over and over again. his 20-foot rise in sea level is assuming that the greenland ice sheet melts and no one knows if that's going to happen or not. there was actually a lot of melting this past summer even on the art that. actually didn't have much i said all this past summer so this is the problem but it's not useful to exaggerate a problem which is what he regularly did. when you are caught exaggerating a problem, you lose credibility and the science loses credibility so no i don't think al gore would have been a bett
